Black Sea and Balkans Security Forum

Black Sea and Balkans Security Forum was organized by New Strategy Center along with its partners and with co-sponsorship from the NATO-PDD at 08-09 June, 2017, in Constanta, Romania. I attended this event as a representative of “A.I. Cuza” Police Academy.

This event represent an annual framework to strengthen and develop networks between security analysts, decision makers, academics and media representatives based in these regions of strategic importance to the Euro-Atlantic security. The specific objectives of this conference are the following:

  • improve awareness on the importance of stability in the Black Sea and the Balkans;
  • identify and reflect on the security challenges in the area;
  • develop current expertise in countering emerging security challenges in the Black Sea and the Balkans;
  • enhance networking between decision makers, security analysts, academics and media representatives.

The forum offered the possibility to discuss both hard (militarization) and soft (non-military) topics. In recent years, the wide region was regarded as a case study in international relations academic debates, but the forum aimed to highlight the practical dimension of stability in the Black Sea and the Balkans, thus changing to a certain degree the approach to the region.
